This is an actual result of a recent Natural Gas procurement auction conducted through The Energy Exchange. The only thing that has been deleted is the client’s name.  Nothing else has been changed. This was the second round of bidding.

The client had already decided to go with a fixed contract with 10% swing tolerance and wanted to see the possible savings associated with various term lengths. Look at what is revealed on this simple, one-page Auction Result Report:
